A single generator, unless it has a very large output, is not enough to provide enough power to run our AC units. The ones most written about here are the Honda's and Yamaha's. Singly they will do pretty much all other functions except AC, are very reliable and quiet. Double them up or have one large enough and we can relax in AC comfort on a hot day so long as the generator has fuel. So where do you spend most of your camping days ?? If at a site with 30a power you will have AC and don't need a generator. BUT, if you spend time dry camping in areas where it's hot and humid you might be a candidate for generator power. So evaluate your needs and begin reading here in the forums. There's pages and pages enough to put you to sleep but you will be able to make a decision on what generator, what fuel etc. will suit your needs
PS: We have been off the grid for up to 4 days in high elevation on battery power alone and have been fine. So no AC needs yet. I do carry a generator with me. It' a contractor style so not really quiet but it will keep me charged up if I need it.
